She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.
As godly women who love the Lord we should aspire to help the poor and needy. That doesn’t mean we all have to do extraordinary things. Sometimes, it’s simply a kind word or a sincere gesture. Each of us should do what God puts in our heart and do it with love.
The Lord is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.
God is the essence of perfect goodness. He is kind, caring, compassionate, generous and merciful toward all who seek Him. Everything from God is good and all good things are from God. Turn to God, His goodness and love last forever.
Gracious words are a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.
Let’s make an effort to encourage the people around us, especially our spouse and our children. Kindness doesn’t cost a thing yet it’s so valuable. Let’s build each other up with loving and kind words that promote hope and courage. A kind word can change someone’s entire day.
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.
By showing compassion and kindness to those in need you’re sharing God’s love and mercy. Let everything you do be done as if you are doing it for the Lord. Let God work through you to fill the needs of His people. Don’t wait for someone else to do what God has called you to do.
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
When you have the love of God in your heart it shows. Your love for God is not seen in your outward appearance but in the way you treat others. If you truly have the love of God in your heart you will show it by being kind, generous and loving to those who need to see God’s love through you.
If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat; if he is thirsty, give him water to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head, and the Lord will reward you.
Have you ever heard the expression “kill them with kindness”? It means to put an end to anger and bitterness by showing kindness and generosity. The more you treat your enemy with unexpected kindness and generosity the more they will see the same love, forgiveness, mercy and grace that the Lord shows you.
Do not let kindness and truth leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.
Love is kind and your kindness shows compassion to the people you love. Sometimes we slip into a comfortable state where we take each other for granted, not intentionally, but it happens and we no longer go out of our way to be kind. The Bible tells us over and over that we should be kind to one another. How much more should we intentionally be kind to our loved ones? Let’s choose to go out of our way to show kindness to the people we love.
